The following describes how Kaptivating Thoughts (“Kaptivating Thoughts,” “I,” “me” or “my”) collects and uses information you provide through KaptivatingThoughts.com, as well as Kaptivating Thoughts pages and accounts on Twitter®, Facebook®, Instagram® and YouTube® (the “Sites”).
Collection of your information.
When you visit my Sites, some information about your computer hardware and software is automatically collected, such as your IP address, domain name, browser type, access time and referring website addresses. An example of when I may use this information is in implementing improvements and analyzing the Sites and for troubleshooting purposes. Most of my Sites do not require any form of registration, allowing you to visit the Sites without telling us who you are.
However, some services, such as email opt-ins, may require you to provide Personal Data that includes your email address and first name. This is provided to me by you voluntarily via an opt-in form, email, or by contacting me via my website; you may choose not to provide Personal Data requested by me, but it may not be possible for you to gain access to certain parts of the site or content.
Use of your personal information.
I may disclose total aggregated user statistics and non-personally identifiable user information (such as usage pattern, browser type and your computer) in order to describe my services to potential advertisers, other third parties and affiliate companies with which I have a business or contractual relationship, and for other lawful purposes.
Cookies: what they are and why they are needed.
Google Analytics privacy notice.
The Sites use Google Analytics to collect information about how visitors use the Site. Google Analytics collects information such as age, gender, location, interests, internet browser, how often they visit the Site and what pages they visit. I use this information from Google Analytics to analyze traffic, improve marketing and improve the Site.

My Sites are not intended for individuals under the age of 13, though I realize that a child under this age may try to access my Site. I do not knowingly collect or maintain information from anyone known to be under the age of 13. If I discover or am otherwise notified that I have received any such information without the consent of a parent or guardian, I will delete that information as soon as possible.
I only retain Personal Data collected from Users for as long as the User’s account is active or otherwise for a limited period of time as long as I need it to fulfill the purposes for which I have initially collected it, unless otherwise required by law. I will retain and use information as necessary to comply with my legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce my agreements for a period of 10 years.
